not cheap?

While the 2 week turn around issue still stands, prices for low volume manufacturing have dropped through the floor with companies like OSHPark.  $5 per sq inch and you get 3 copies  of a full spec 2 layer boards shipped to your door.  I have also had boards back in as little as 6 business days, though that's not the norm.


I've done self etched boards, as well as have access to a board router, but the hassle of not having plated vias and holes has pushed me well past the pain threshold.  There's certainly still a use for home grown boards and this looks like it takes plenty of pain out, but for personal projects I can wait.

Will you call it desktop?

The way it is described, it is difficult to call it desktop. Chemicals and other things, need WHMIS, MSDS and safe place to work. May be laboratory is safe place.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
